A centaur is a fantasy creature that has the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.

They are based on the centaurs of Greek mythology, who were said to be wild and unruly, but also had some wise and noble members, such as Chiron, the teacher of many heroes.

Centaurs are often featured in fantasy stories, games, and movies, such as The Chronicles of Narnia, Dungeons & Dragons, and Harry Potter.

Here is a joke about centaurs: Q: What do you call a centaur who likes to sing?
A: A neigh-sayer.

The most famous centaur in Greek mythology was Chiron.

He was known for his great wisdom and as the tutor of many heroes, such as Hercules, Achilles, and Jason.

He was also different from other centaurs, who were usually wild and violent.

Chiron was a centaur who was very smart and kind
He taught the heroes many things, like how to use their mind
He was not like his brethren, who drank and fought and chased
The lovely nymphs around the woods, with no respect or taste

Chiron was a peaceful soul, who liked to heal and learn
He knew the stars and herbs and arts, and had a lot of fun
He was a friend of gods and men, and even had a wife
A nymph named Chariklo, who was the love of his life

But Chiron had a tragic fate, that no one could prevent
He was hit by a poisoned arrow, that Hercules had sent
The wound was very painful, but it could not kill him fast
For he was immortal, and his agony would last

He begged the gods to end his life, and take away his pain
And Zeus agreed to help him out, and make a fair exchange
He gave up his immortality, to free Prometheus bound
And then he died a noble death, and became a starry crown
